July 14, 2008 — EAA President Tom Poberezny joined U.S. Representative Sam Graves (R-Missouri) for a extensive presentation about EAA at the announcer’s stand Saturday during the annual Wing Nuts Flying Circus Fly-In. EAA Chapter 1405, of which Graves is a member, sponsors the event at the Gould Peterson Memorial Airport (K57) in Tarkio, Missouri.
“It was a nice turnout from the local aviation community, pilots and aviation enthusiasts,” Poberezny said. “I had the opportunity to meet with many EAA and chapter members, as well as address the crowd with the congressman.” He and Congressman Graves spoke for about 35-40 minutes on a wide range of subjects, including the growing sport pilot/light-sport aircraft initiative, the homebuilt movement, and EAA, as well as the aircraft in the air and on the ground, which included homebuilts, production airplanes, antiques, and Warbirds.
